BASF publishes new brochure on coil coatings

Paint manufacturer provides information on coatings and applications for steel and aluminum coils

Münster, (PresseBox) - Coil coatings protect and decorate all kinds of everyday items, yet often go unnoticed. To present new information on this industrial coatings area, BASF Coatings has prepared the brochure "Coil Coatings- Solutions made by BASF." The brochure particularly focuses on the various options for coating coils. For instance, in addition to the classic coating process, the brochure describes a new, shorter workflow in which pretreatment and priming with a waterborne pretreatment primer from BASF is implemented in a single step. The brochure also demonstrates the wide range of applications for coil coatings. For example, coated panels are used for the production of refrigerators and building façades.

Coil coatings are used to coat aluminum and steel coils before being processed further. Since the panels are stamped, rolled and joined, the applied coating has to be extremely flexible and elastic so that it does not flake off. At the same time, however, it has to meet stringent requirements for scratch resistance.

The brochure is geared toward customers and users in the panel-processing industry. The target group includes both architects and members of the construction industry. The brochure can be downloaded at
